The title on the video itself was one of praise for the bus-driver, and
it was an excellent reaction on her part.

Incredibly quick emergency stop.

I hope that the driver and none of the (entirely innocent) bus
passengers were injured in what was obviously a rapid deceleration.

I thought it was sad that no-one actually went and comforted the girl and
made her at least sit still, she would definitely be in shock and possibly
had broken bits.

The driver seemed to be doing some of that, though it wasn't apparently
in sight of the cameras.

I recall a time when I was in a bike box at the head of a traffic
queue on the A20 he
http://goo.gl/maps/y9Nsw

I berated a National Express coach driver for illegally encroaching
into the bike box.

The lights went green and we all pulled off. At the moment of pulling
off my bicycle handlebars broke, and there was nothing for me to do
but end up in a heap on the tarmac.

The National Express coach driver stopped 2 inches from my arse.

Never before have I been happier that coach drivers have such
excellent forward visibility with their extra large and low front
windscreens.

I note that the site "LiveLeak" has a section of "Top Leakers", which is probably pretty accurate for the demographic.

Thanks for providing even more evidence that cycles are not a viable form of
transport

and that motor vehicle drivers are well trained, attentive and have quick
reactions, their vehicles good brakes, and that drivers are not easily
baited by ignorant cyclists.

"The handle-bars broke" - what was it - instantaneous metal fatigue?

Or was the bike poorly maintained?
